We spent 3 weeks in South Africa and our stay at the hotel The View was the worst. We spent one night for New Year’s eve there; check-in staff was very nice but, although we had book 1 month in advance, we got the room (no. 203) at the end of a dark pathway with a nice view on the... More

The designer pizza menu is definitely worth a look. Having breakfast with a great view is a highlight every morning . The rooms are... More

The Views has the best views in the south! You got 180 degree sea views! Absolutely Brilliant. Need to provide free wifi in the rooms. Currently only available in the reception area. The service was excellent, staff were courteous and very friendly. However the restaurant can do with a buffet. The system of having to place an order can result... More

This was the best accommodation spot that I have experienced in the longest time! This place is worth every star on their wall and every penny I spent. I recommend The View to anybody any day. It was pure luxury, beginning to end. All staff were extremely helpful, friendly and eager to assist in big things and little things. This... More

What an awesome stay, we experienced top class service from all staff, delicious food at Georgio's and an awesome Spa treatment for Couples and we went back the following day for an extra treatment. Thank you for a memorable experience. 10/10

We stayed over for one night. The most basic room was amazing, can only imagine the others. Great ocean views. Very neat. Very modern with an Italian feel. Breakfast was good. Service throughout was good. We'd definitely go back. Looking forward to our next stay😉
